A Dental Implant is a restoration option in which a titanium “root” is implanted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Dental implants can also be used in orthodontics as anchorage.
How Are Dental Implants Done?
Your Periodontist will determine where and how your implant should be placed. The treatment plan is custom made for you depending on your specific condition and type of implant chosen. Several of our doctors are dual-trained in Periodontics, ensuring you will get the best dental implant treatment at our office.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
An ideal dental implant candidate is someone who is in good general and oral health who is free from gum disease. Because the implant is inserted into the jaw bone, it is imperative that the candidate has sufficient bone tissue to work with.
Maintaining Dental Implants
Dental implants require the same treatment as regular teeth: adequate brushing, flossing and dental hygiene visits.
